Kimberly Willis Holt was born in Pensacola during a hurricane. Holt considers herself a southerner, but in reality she is a child of the world. Seven generations of her family are from the piney woods of central Louisiana, but her father’s military career caused her to call a different place home every couple of years. Some of her father’s assignments included France and Guam. Holt’s first novel, My Louisiana Sky, was an ALA Notable Book and an ALA Top Ten Best Book for Young Adults. It also received a Boston Globe—Horn Book Honor Award. Her second novel, When Zachary Beaver Came to Town, won the National Book Award.
